Pounds if I would let him escape - I told him I would not do it -
he came downstairs and we brought him away - he said that when
at Newport he turned back his Head he saw the soldier point his Musket
at him from the Westgate Window - when he fell down upon his Hands
and Knees and was shot - he said he wished he had been killed at the -
Time - That he was carried from there to the Trams and to Blackwood
And from thence by Tram to Talybont and from thence by Boat to
